Question What's the minimum size for a breeding tank?

I'm thinking of possibly breeding my Betta but I would like to know what the minimum size would be. All so could you use a split tank for breeding? As in having a fish living on one side but use the other side for breeding?

The last minimum size I heard was ten gallons. However I could be wrong, I'm not a breeder at this time. As for a split tank, I'm not exactly sure. I'm sure others would know though.

Good luck!

I've heard of experienced breeders doing it in 5s, but really, a half-filled 10 gallon seems to be the way to go.

Do you have all the other tanks you will need, too? :)

I'd say no less then 10g, but I would go with a 20g long.

I don't think a divided tank would be a good idea because the fry when they hatch are super tiny and could swim into the other side and get eaten.
